Time spent with Him
Growing, growing, 
Getting to know Him more.
So much more growing to do.

He prunes.. there is so much for Him to prune.
I want to grow lots of fruit...fruit for Him.
To grow properly, He must prune.
And it HURTS.

Growing in Him.
In His wisdom.
In His Love.

So happy to know the Master.
to be pruned by His loving Hand.

This week's 5 minute Friday at  the gypsy mama was once again a stretching exercise for me. I enjoy these, makes me think on the spot. Although I did delete 2 lines (oops!) as I typed. I forgot I wasn't suppose to. And I sure do hate to leave typos..
Check out the link. It is interesting how a number of people can write on the same word for 5 minutes and have such different takes on it.


  1. glad your attitude is so great during the pruning season I was reminded of this verse in 1 Thess. 5:18 "Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus"
    great post!

  2. Thank you! -- My attitude isn't always the best, I'm afraid. As I said, pruning hurts and I would like to avoid pain. Just so thankful that He does it lovingly - knowing what is best for me....

  3. Yes - the pruning does hurt. I know that well. I just have to remember that the growth which follows is all so very worth it.

  4. Beautiful.

  5. I love how you connected growing to pruning. Even though we don't like the times of pruning, you are so right...they are needed if we are to grow in HIM and to grow in bearing fruit.

    Beautifully written-

  7. Thank you, Stacy and Jenifer for your sweet words! :)
